Reported by Anadolu, Tuesday (24/7/2018), According to local medical sources, the boy was 13 years old and was shot in a clash in the Dheisheh refugee camp in the West Bank yesterday.

Both local medical sources and the Palestinian Ministry of Health do not know the identity of the dead.

On the other hand, the Israeli military also did not want to comment on the incident of the death of a child in Palestine.

According to local residents, clashes took place after Israeli forces stormed the refugee camp to arrest several Palestinians who were hunted by Israeli forces.

During this time, the Israeli military often carried out large-scale arrests in the West Bank. The arrest was carried out under the pretext of searching for hunted Palestinians.

Since last March, more than 140 Palestinians have been killed – and thousands more injured – in clashes that occurred during Palestinian protests in the Gaza Strip.
